The Legg Mason cash flow statement is one of the important reports considered by investors doing a fundamental analysis of the company. While its important to look at the Legg Mason debt position, the cash flow statement becomes equally important because public companies use accrual accounting. For example, if a company sells a product which gets counted as Legg Mason revenue but does not convert to cash because it does not receive payment in the same quarter, it affects the cash position for that period. Legg Mason saw a cash impact of $-464.51M from the buyback of LM shares. The cash flow statement helps in the Legg Mason stock analysis by providing more information for evaluating changes in assets, liabilities and equities. Legg Mason has a positive cash and cash equivalents change of $2.42M.
